This fragrant, exquisite red has captivating scents of wild red berry, rose petal, white pepper and menthol and a smoky mineral note. The linear, racy palate is all about finesse, delivering flavors of strawberry, red raspberry, star anise, crushed mint and graphite. It's ethereally elegant and well balanced, with vibrant acidity and polished tannins. It's not for everyone, but lovers of finesse will be in ecstasy. Drink through 2028.
